Review of Nomadland

Review of Nomadland: Surviving America in the Twenty-First Century by Jessica BruderRating **** I recently saw a video that demonstrated the many features of a Volkswagon camper van. On the outside, it looked like a nondescript passenger van. But once inside the van transformed into a very livable space complete with kitchen and bathroom. My […]

Hurricane Florence coverage 101

The Weather Channel It’s been a staple of severe weather events for a long time. If you want to demonstrate the effects of a hurricane, you put a journalist in the weather during their live broadcast. What better way to show wind and rain and waves than to have some TV news anchor clinging to […]

Everything 2001 A Space Odyssey

Space Odyssey: Stanley Kubrick, Arthur C. Clarke, and the Making of a Masterpiece Rating ***** When I was in my early twenties, I had never read a book solely for enjoyment. That changed after I met my wife. Shortly after we were married, she gave me the novel The Shining by Steven King to read. […]

Trump is making America safe again!

I want to thank President Trump for ordering the National Guard to protect the border. Our former Governor Rick Perry did the same thing when he was running for President. It was a colossal waste of time and money. But I’m sure President Trump has a better plan. We need to stop all those illegals […]

Greg Abbott’s failure to do his job

As we approach the next election, I think it’s important to point out the many failures of our current Governor Greg Abbott. Abbott is widely known to favor industry over the people he represents. He famously instituted new laws that prevent citizens from banning fracking in their communities after the residents of Denton, Texas voted […]

Crazy in Texas

I moved to Texas back in 2014. The governor at the time was Rick Perry. Perry was the guy who insisted that he needed to order the National Guard to the Texas border to prevent an imagined invasion of illegal aliens. The National Guard left a few months later after it was determined that their […]

In defense of the Windows phone

A little over a year ago, I switched from Sprint to AT&T. My contract was up and I was frustrated with Sprint’s lack of support for Windows phones. At the time I was using a Samsung Galaxy phone running the Windows operating system. I went over to the AT&T store where they had the new […]

EverythingNonfiction gets a rebranding

I’ve been writing reviews of nonfiction books, films and documentaries for eight-plus years. I average about 25 to 35 visitors a day. Yet in eight years I’ve only managed to attract 61 Facebook followers and 51 Twitter followers. That is downright pitiful. So, I’ve decided to make a concerted effort to get more followers. I […]

All the President’s yes men

A month ago Trump had his first cabinet meeting. The meeting was memorable not for any substance but because of the way each cabinet member took turns heaping praise on their boss. The best president in history. Next we have the new White House Communications chief, Anthony Scaramucci, who takes the term “yes man” to a […]

The coming economic storm

So, the stock market is trading at record levels. Unemployment is at record lows. What could possibly go wrong? How about an economic collapse worse than the 2007 – 2009 S&P 500 50% decline. Why do I have such a pessimistic outlook when everything looks so rosy? Let’s just say I’ve seen this movie before. […]
